Newcastle defender Mike Williamson has urged his side to grab a Europa League place by the end of the season, according to Sky Sports.

The Magpies are currently in eighth place and are just five points behind sixth placed Everton, who they were due to face this weekend if it were not for the FA Cup.

Williamson has now told his teammates that they should look for strong finish to the season.

"Everyone has got something to play for. If we can get a couple of good results there are targets. Looking up in the top half and the Europa League, that's what we’ve got to push for,” said Williamson.

"We need to make sure we get the consistency we've had in the season."

In their recent 4-1 win over Hull, the win was spoiled by manager Alan Pardew being sent to the stands for an incident with Hull’s David Meyler.

Despite the altercation, the 30-year-old is confident that the players are focused on what happens on the pitch, despite what has happened off it.

"Off the pitch there might be things going on but that doesn't affect us. We know our jobs and what we get paid for,” added the centre-back.

“We know where we want to get to. That focus will keep us going.”
